Activision will delay Call of Duty: Warzone’s next Season by a few more weeks to fix bugs. Today’s blog post revealed that Vanguard and Warzone Pacific season 2 launches had been moved from February 2 to February 14. This is a wonderful day for Warzone updates.
“We understand your frustrations, and we hear you loudly and clearly. The post states that we have deployed several updates to date. But, more work is needed. Since December’s launch of the Caldera map and Vanguard guns, Warzone has been struggling. The game’s performance has been impacted on consoles in particular.
The official Trello page for Warzone keeps track of some of the most bizarre issues popping up. These include a crash on Xbox that occurs if you press the home key too hard and operator skins that make players invisible from long distances.
Although Warzone has a history of persistent bugs, this is the first time that a planned update has been delayed. We will use the extra development time to deliver updates. This includes optimizations to gameplay and game balancing (including weapon/equipment balancing), fixing bugs, and improving game stability.
It is possible to speculate that the delay could be due to the strike at Warzone software developer Raven Software. Raven Software laid off a third of its quality assurance team (those who check for bugs before updates rollout) within a matter of days following the launch of Warzone Pacific season 1 Call of Duty will soon have new masters, as Warzone’s future looks dim. Microsoft announced yesterday that it would acquire Activision Blizzard in its entirety for $68.7 Billion.
